As a member-run union, Local 1000 relies on its elected officers and representatives to choose the direction we take in our fight for better wages and working conditions. Our leaders are at the forefront of organizing our efforts to give our members–and all Californians–the opportunity to have a good life, live in sustainable communities and enjoy the fruits of social, environmental and economic justice.
We work together to engage our 96,000 members to enforce our hard-earned contract rights, to strengthen the middle class and give power back to working families.
As a statewide officer, an officer in your District Labor Council or as a bargaining unit representative or CBUR, you have a voice in the activities that matter most to you, your fellow workers and your families.
Voting begins April 20, 2018 and concludes on May 21, 2018. Results will be announced May 30, 2018.
